religious does not just mean that you be religious on sundays. we have privatized religion to such a great extent here. some of us may be obsessed about this issue. we talk about freedom and religious freedom and conscience -- my sense is most of america has no idea what we are talking about. i think we have different senses of what freedom is. maybe freedom means increased access to contraception. how do we get a common vocabulary again? >> that is a great question. on the freedom of conscience and religious liberty, that was about a year ago as well, i think the left really feared that percolating. that is why they turned into an argument about contraception. i have to out fear your fear. i have to out celebrity your liberty. -- out-liberty your liberty. if we start each sentence with a question -- is it fair that the government, and then fill in the blank with anything you want. worshipu you can't your god. else you that you can't send your kid to a better school. is it fair that the government tells you that you can't run that business? basically, it is what they do without saying it.

about in marriage law and a lawsuit in another state, we hear this issue about religion. i may be overreacting a little bit, and if so, thank you for calling in. host: ron has this tweet. let me follow up on the point that many religions still don't identify same-sex marriage as a marriage. guest: many don't, and yet, many do. if you read the papers and follow the news, many people in states that do not legally recognized marriage, many churches perform ceremonies and go through ceremonies in their faith communities. a broad range of faith. it is wrong to think that religion is in one place on this. religion is all over the map on this. even within religions, there are enormous debates within a variety of sects of how to deal with same-sex couples, gay or lesbian clergy. this is a debate that is going to be going on for quite awhile but i think that the movement of history is on the side i am one. host: let me go back to one of the earlier caller is discussing adoption and the restrictions put in place. of course we know what has happened in russia, where they say no to various

protects the people's rights of freedom of speech, freedom of press, free exercise of religion, free trade agreement of association and all other such rights of the people. my second amendment advances the fundamental principle of political equality for all by empowering congress and the states the right to regulate political spending. it will allow congress to pass campaign finance reform legislation that will withstand constitutional challenges. mr. speaker, we need to empower people, not corporations or big money special interests. our current system has been corrupted. it undermines the rights of ordinary citizens. it undermines our democracy. surely this is not the system our founders envisioned. the preamble to the constitution is we the people. let us hope that this congress doesn't forget that. i ask my colleagues to join me in supporting these important bills to reform our campaign finance laws and assure that corporate rights do not trumps people's rights. thank you. i yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back the balance of his time. t

about their religion and their gods? we have they warfare going on around this country. we are talking about gun control. if i want to see somebody taken now, why do have to go inside a school? guest: i want to thank the caller for his service in vietnam. this is one of the big shifts in its war effort than i write about in my book. the major philosophy for insurgents was socialism, communism, often allied with nationalism. that change in 1979 we saw the rise of jihadism as the dominant force driving terrorism around the world. he saw that with the takeover of the embassy in iran. he saw that with the soviet invasion of afghanistan. you saw all those things coming together in a way that empowered jihadists. tendency to saya tennesse that they are fanatical. the history suggests otherwise. and proper strategy that we implemented in iraq which focused on security and tries to provide some of the legitimate needs of the people who want economic growth and jobs and freedom. a strategy like that can be successful. we saw that in the surge in iraq. do not lose heart. the reality is most insu
